Richardson Withdraws from Secretary of Commerce Nomination

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has backed out of the nomination as Secretary of Commerce because of an ongoing federal investigation into a California company that won municipal bond business in New Mexico after contributing money to Richardson's causes.

It's such a shame but the investigation truly would have been a distraction for the "no-drama" Obama administration. Prayerfully, this situation will all work out to his satisfaction but it is what it is.
